To honor and celebrate the accomplishments of graduate students at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Graduate Student Appreciation Week is slated for Monday, April 19, through Friday, April 23. It is hosted by the Graduate School, Career Services and the United Government of Graduate Students.

Several events aimed at serving graduate students and at increasing understanding about the value of graduate education are scheduled throughout the week. The Graduate School also is collecting statements of appreciation about graduate students and graduate education to share with the community on the school's Web site starting Monday.

John A. Stevenson, interim dean of the Graduate School, is pointing to the week's finale as a highlight: "Much Ado About Graduate Education," a collection of four events set for 1 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Friday, April 23, in the British and Irish Studies Room of Norlin, fifth floor. Events include:

  • 1 p.m. "The Tempest: Getting Into Graduate School", a panel discussion by faculty and graduate students
  • 2:30 p.m. "As You Like It: Surviving and Thriving in Graduate School," a selection of informal discussions or "table topics" presented by alumni, faculty and staff
  • 3:30 p.m. "All's Well That Ends Well: Life After Graduate School," a panel discussion of alumni representing academia, business and industry
  • 4:30 p.m. Reception and celebration of graduate students at CU-Boulder
